Unai Emery reacts! Arsenal fans get sent official letter sent as Gunners in talks with Tactical genius?
Unai Emery has opened up and thanked Arsenal for his time at the Emirates after getting the sack on Friday.
Emery was brought into the London club to help Arsenal get back into the habit of winning trophies and challenging for the Champions League on a yearly basis, but despite a number of chances, and despite a lot of money to spend, he was taking the Gunners in the wrong direction.
And after months, and months, AND MONTHS of calls for fans to give him the chop, the Gunners hierarchy finally came out and decided to let him leave on Good Friday, with the club now seeking a replacement for the Spaniard.
There has been talk that MAX ALLEGRI IS IN TALKS about making a move back into management and with the Arsenal.
In a letter published on Arsenal’s official website, Emery said: “It has been an honour to be the Arsenal head coach.
“To all the fans, I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me to understand and feel the greatness of Arsenal.
“To all of you who have supported us from every corner of the globe, all of you who have come to the Emirates, all of you who have waited in the rain and cold just to greet me after a game. I want to tell all of you that I have worked with passion, with commitment and with effort.
“I would have liked nothing more than to have achieved better results for you.
“I also want to send a message of gratitude to all Arsenal employees for the way they have treated me. The greatness of Arsenal is in every director, executive, employee, assistant and volunteer.
“In particular, I want to highlight (former chief executive) Ivan Gazidis, who welcomed me to the club, and (head of football) Raul Sanllehi, (technical director) Edu and (managing director) Vinai Venkatesham for their respect, companionship and help.
“Until the very last minute I have been treated with honour and honesty. And of course, I send my sincere gratitude to the Kroenke family, for their trust.
“It has been a year and a half full of emotions, of great moments and some other more bitter ones, but not a single day has gone by without me stopping to think about how lucky I have been to work for this club with these players and their professional and personal qualities.
“They have always honoured the shirt they wear. They deserve your support.
“I had already experienced a lot in football, but I have enjoyed and learned a lot in England, in the Premier League, about respect for professionals and about the purity of football.
“My best wishes always. COYG.”
